Diners at a new Highland restaurant got quite a start after a two-car accident Sunday sent one of the vehicles into the building.
A Jeep Wrangler was heading southbound in the 9400 block of Indianapolis Boulevard around 3:09 p.m. Feb. 2 when a GMC Yukon made a left turn from northbound Indianapolis Boulevard to head west on Hart Road, Highland Police spokesman Cmdr. John Banasiak said in an email Monday. Both had a green light, and as the Yukon turned, it hit the left-front of the Jeep, causing it to veer off the road and hit the north wall of Emilio’s Restaurante and Cantina.
The Jeep’s driver, a 62-year-old St. John woman, suffered non-life threatening injuries to her arm and was taken to Community Hospital, Banasiak said; the Yukon driver, a 66-year-old Munster man, had knee and foot pain but wasn’t taken anywhere.
Highland Police issued the Yukon driver a ticket for failure to yield the right of way, Banasiak said, and both vehicles were towed from the scene. No one in the restaurant was injured.
